People who have never interacted with a person who has a mental or physical disability may think of the exchange as intimidating or nerve-wracking. They might worry what to talk about or how to avoid staring. These concerns are understandable, but it’s important to realize people with disabilities should be treated the same as everyone else. The purpose of this presentation is to foster awareness and address proper etiquette when interacting with individuals with disabilities.
